The Rotunda is a large, domed, circular room located in the center of the Capitol on the second floor. It has been used for ceremonial functions, such as inaugurations and the unveiling of statues. Former President Ronald Reagan was the most-recent person whose coffin was displayed in the Rotunda for public viewing (called lying in state). Reagan died in June 2004. The Rotunda's lower walls hold historic paintings. A frescoed band, or "frieze," depicting significant events in American history rings its upper walls. The Rotunda canopy, a 4,664-square-foot fresco painting entitled The Apotheosis of Washington, depicts the first President of the United States rising into the clouds in glory.
